The Woman in the Window, by A. J Finn
Dr. Anna Fox is a gifted child psychologist with a bad case of agoraphobia and an even worse fondness for Merlot. Shut inside her New York City brownstone, she observes her neighbors and their daily routines through the lens of her camera, until one day she witnesses what she believes to be a murder.
Anna’s constantly inebriated state makes her an unreliable narrator, so the reader is left questioning whether a murder really occurred—or if the supposed victim ever even existed. The book reminded me of one of the old movies that Anna spends her evenings watching, especially Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window.
Unfortunately, the middle of the book dragged to the point of boredom. If the pace had been more exciting, I would have given The Woman in the Window 5 stars.
Fans of The Girl on the Train will love this book.
